  • Serves 4 or more. (depends on size of patties and appetites.)
Author Notes

You can also add 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs to make the texture slightly lighter. I serve this on a challah bun with horseradish sauce and pickles but you can garnish it with anything! —kelseykpastry

do you mean rolled oats, fine instead of coarse ? And could I fry gently instead of grilling ?

If I don't have a kitchen aid what would be the next best mixing method?

I gave the ingredients a whirl on my food processor, worked wonderfully.
